About This Class

What if you never again lost a client due to disagreements or misunderstandings? How much money would that save your business? How much stress would that save you?

Clients are the lifeblood of every business endeavor, losing just one can have major implications for your budget and ability to keep yourself in business - even more so if you are a freelancer or solopreneur.

This class will teach you:

  • How keeping your clients happy doesn’t mean “the customer is always right”
  • Strategy #1: Set Proper Expectations - prevent future issues with smart policies
  • Strategy #2: Freeze Hot Tempers - 60-second plan to freeze hot tempers and push the pause button on client conflict
  • Strategy #3: Find The Problem Fast - discover, understand, and fix the source of the problem
  • Strategy #4: Document, Reset, Realign - recover, reorganize, and rebuild the client relationship to keep your current clients happy
  • Strategy #5: Build Leeway With Simple Things - build rapport and trust that'll save you frustration later
